Last week, my husband went on a canoe trip with his father up in the Minnesota Boundary Waters. Back in the day, he wouldn't have been able to take a trip like this without us figuring out who would help me take care of the kids.
All week, I felt so blessed that I was able to safely and lovingly take care of my children without the help of others. I was able to get them ready for school, cook dinner, keep the house clean and drive them to all their activities. Granted, I did have to set up a carpool for basketball so I didn't have to delay putting my toddler to bed (everyone needs help from time to time).
I love that my husband was able to spend special time with his dad without worrying about me and the kids. Plus, I love that I didn't have to worry about what the next day would bring, because I knew I could do it!!! What a gift!!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
